Tension Between Wholesale Power Markets and State Policies: The Next Big Threat to Climate Progress?

  • 12:10PM to 1:00PM
  • Room 112

With federal leadership on climate change practically out of the question in the near future, we are even more dependent on state policies to drive pollution reductions. But states are increasingly facing challenges arguing that policies designed to reduce pollution from the power sector are preempted by the Federal Power Act. In addition, opponents of these state policies contend that many such policies are at odds with the design of the wholesale electricity markets regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Stress, depression, anxiety, chemical dependency, substance abuse, and other mental health conditions and impairments among law students are problems that continue to spark a national dialogue. While students enter law school suffering from clinical stress and depression at a rate that mirrors the national average, the rate sharply increases during the first year of law school. Through the duration of their legal education, the rates of law students grappling with substance abuse and mental health problems increase dramatically.

Speech, Surveillance, and Secrecy under the Trump Administration

  • 12:10PM to 1:00PM
  • Room 121

During the campaign, Donald Trump said he would “open up” libel law so that newspapers could more easily be sued and called for the surveillance of mosques in the United States. As president-elect, he tweeted that those who burned the flag should lose their citizenship and be jailed. And after he took office, the White House barred specific news organizations from attending a press briefing. Please join us for a discussion with Jameel Jaffer and Dean Post about these and other developments, and what they mean for the future of the First Amendment under the Trump Administration.
